Circus


Publication date 1959
Topics animation
Publisher Bailey Films
Digitizing sponsor Ellen Simms
Here, a cartoon circus is created by Willis Simm's animation class at Hughes Jr. High School, Woodland Hills, California, with a musical soundtrack performed by Hughes' music teacher Robert Clark. The film is reminiscent of Alexander Calder Performs his "Circus" (Whitney Museum, 1955). This film takes an approach similar to that of Calder, whimsical, poetic, fantastic, but created by his junior high students, rather than the artist himself.
